Introduction


Dear Rasikas,

We are delighted to welcome you to another edition of Special Quiz coinciding with our ‘Week 350’ milestone!

So, are you ready? This time we thought why not address the area which everyone of our rasikas so eagerly want to understand but dread attempting it because of lack of formal music training. This quiz is built entirely around akarams/swaras sthanas!

What???? Seriously????

Yes, indeed! Already beginning to worry or feeling clueless? Cheer up!! The quiz has been so formatted to cater to rasikas who have no idea of swaras at all! Well. . . . I am sure you are wondering how that could be possible?? This quiz is actually the outcome of a long cherished Uma’s idea to demystify swaras sthanas. Come on, brace yourselves and give it a go! We are sure you will find it interesting. Your comments and feedback is what we are eagerly looking for, so don’t forget to send them in.

Rules of the game


The genesis of this quiz and some useful tips have been provided by Uma in Audio clip above, don’t miss it!!
